NiSi Explorer Collection 100x150mm Reverse GND8 (0.9) 3 Stop Filter
NiSi Graduated Neutral Density Filters (GND) are the indispensable tool for any landscape photographer by allowing you to overcome the limits of the dynamic range of your camera, while simultaneously capturing details in the light and dark areas of the scene. Made of high-quality lens grade optical glass, they will allow you to capture every little detail in your images without distortions or colour alterations. Perfect when combined with a NiSi filter holder, NiSi graduated neutral density (GND) filters are compatible with relevant third-party that support 2mm thick filters.
Reverse filters have a definite transition between light and dark (in the centre); like Hard GND filters. But unlike hard filters, they have an upward transition to attenuate the normal light drop at the edges of the lenses. They are ideal for shooting conditions, such as sunrise and sunset, when the brightest light is on the horizon. They allow you to stop down the sun and fade upwards to preserve the sky detail, whilst the transparent lower section of the filter lets you keep all the essential foreground detail. These are most effective at the wider focal lengths and are a very useful addition to complete your GND filter collection.
ND8, 0.9 and 3 stops are different ways to indicate the light absorption value of the filter in question.
The NiSi Explorer Collection 100x150mm Nano IR Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter – GND8 (0.9) – 3 Stop is part of our Explorer Series for made for adventure. The filters feature a special glass hardening process that makes them double the strength of a typical glass filter. The Explorer series are much less prone to accidental breakage and perfect for active photographers.
The NiSi Explorer Collection 100x150mm Nano IR Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter – GND8 (0.9) – 3 Stop is a rectangular filter that helps to darken specific areas of an image, such as bright skies while allowing for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image. Reverse edged GNDs are similar to hard-edged GNDs except that the darkest part of the filter is at the transition point. These filters have a specific use for shooting at the light source where the light is harshest at the horizon and tapers off toward the sky. This type of filter is most appropriate for scenes that have a sudden transition from the foreground to the sky with the brightest part of the scene near the horizon. Most commonly, this would include landscapes with no elements protruding above the horizon such as a seascape looking toward the open ocean. They can be used shooting into the direct light where a sharp transition is needed.
NiSi GND filters do not affect the colouration of the image, offer a true to life colour and are made from high-quality optical glass (not resin) with nano coating to prevent losing any single bit of detail. By using a neutral density filter the camera is vulnerable to infrared light which will cast the unwanted red colour to the photos when shooting at a small aperture. NiSi GND filters have an infrared protection coating layer to eliminate the infrared light through the lens to bring back the natural true to life colour.
The NiSi 100mm filter system is great for cameras with lenses that have a standard filter thread from 49 mm to 95mm.
This 100x100mm filter is compatible with the NiSi 100mm filter system.
Unique on the market
Thanks to the very high chromatic correspondence and absence of dominant colours, you can finally say goodbye to impractical and time-consuming colour corrections in post-production. NiSi filters do not degrade the image and your lens and photographic sensor will always work at maximum of their potential. The NiSi Explorer Collection is made from B270 tempered glass. It features the same Nano coating process as our optical glass filters. This filter is tempered and hardened making it much less prone to accidental damage but this does not mean it is unbreakable. After a long period of time, the hardening may decline.
The Nano® Coating treatment gives the filter the quality of repelling water and oils, making cleaning very easy even in extreme conditions or with the presence of seawater. The finishing of the edges and the rounded corners improve the resistance of the filter and the grip. Our filters and holders are born to be used outdoors, in any weather situation, enjoy photography in its purest essence.
